Love To Drive This Car — Performance:handles well all around Build:needs serious repairs-transmission is totally destroyed Appearance: inside is in good condition, outside has minor scratches with one serious dent in the passenger door. Cost: fairly expensive to drive-PREMIUM GAS ONLY... about 12 mpg (based on my driving) Love to drive this car

Excellent Car If You Have The Ability To Repair It Yourself — Solid car, very well built but for the size of the engine it got terrible fuel economy. very high cost to maintain and once the electrical system had a bug in it everything else usually started to fail. not very good acceleration but did have a very high top end making it an excellent car for highway use. handling was surprisingly good considering the size of the car

Yeah!!!! Love These Cars — Probably the best 4 door sedan around ...ever... in terms of reliability ease of maintenance comfort and performance. Hell...I own 2 a 1989 735il with 200k + and a 1991 as well...Really great automobiles...These cars are really easy to maintain and parts are readily available and affordable from non-dealer parts houses.

A Cargret — Worst car I have ever owned. Its regulator busted a long time ago. The engine, transmission, and interior all had issues. The car took too much gas. I can't rag on this car enough. Never buy this car unless you plan on investing thousands of dollars to repair it. Not a car to buy.

A Good All Round Car — performance was not bad considering the size of the car the 3.5 straight 6 is a good engine i did not have any problems with it at all the only thing when i had it there was an air lock in the cooling system which was easy to sort out . acceleration was not blistering but would put alot of boy racers to shame . the braking was good abs worked well .the handling was a challenging it had the standard wheels and Tires on so it was a bit tail happy especially in the wet . build quality was good every thing still worked inside the car the styling was good plenty of room front and back good quality leather its a nice place to sit in on long journeys. i paid next to nothing for the car itself insurance was quite cheap i did go through some tires for the back but that was my fault lol if i could take it easy i would get mid 20s to the gallon .i thought it was a fun car to drive fast in a straight line and fun around corners

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

This car has the power and the handling to rule the road, the comfort and all features you could ask for, also has tons of cargo room and if you should be in the backseat it feels like your in a limo.

Cons

This car is expensive but worth every penny. The 750IL is not a real common car to find now, however its seems that where i live there are quite a few rare cars around. The other Con is gas milage, you will pass everything but a gas station but hey, this car cost a little over $100,000 New in 1996, this was the Flagship Car and is a part of BMW's Rich History.

I Am Very Impressed With All Aspects Of This Car, I Drive It Daily. — I love the Power and the Handling. I like the Heated Front and Rear Seats and Heated steering wheel in the Winter Months. The seats are extremely comfortable and the Rear seats even Recline. I love the shock value when you pull up at a gas station and people freak out when they see V12 on the sides and back of the car. The only thing I don't like is Gas Mileage but thats okay, I make enough money to afford it and 20 dollars every 2 days isnt that bad for as much as I drive.

Beast Of A Car — This is the best car I have owned by a long way. I bought it to drive to Finland when I moved there and cruised through Europe in comfort. The boot swallowed all my belongings. It sounds like a dream.

Luxury With Power To Match — good quality car very plush but has enough power to get out of its own way fairly easily, its not the best on gas but insurance is very cheap because of how safe it is, plus it will do 140 mph
